Question about Frigidaire GLTF530DS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water only fills the machine in certain parts of cycle

The cold water does not go into the machine at the beginning of the cycle.  It will come in later in the cycle.  Hot water will come in at the beginning of the cycle.

    Unfortunately, cold water is an option, but it doesn't happen.  We checked the spec sheets and it seems it might be a faulty fuse or relay.  I am not a repair person, but it seems we might have to see one if we are to remedy this.  In the meantime we will use warm water.

My washing machine stopped working in mid-cycle. No agitation is going on and I could not drain it but putting to spin.


Make sure the washer fills with cold water from the beginning of the cycle because most washers have a cold only rinse cycle and if your cold water valve is bad then the machine will stop mid cycle because it cannot fill the washer for the rinse cycle. Secondly, it helps to know which washer you have so please enter more info next time you ask a question. Good luck.

Washer filling problem


Check to hose to the water level control. It goes from the outside of the tub up to the control which is located in the same area as the timer. It's usually round with the end of that tube and at least 2 wires connected to it. Disconnect the hose and blow air through it. Reconnect and try again. Still no fill, try filling with that tube disconnected. Watch it the entire time as with the tube off the water should not stop. If it fills all the way with the tube off the water control unit has a problem.

It wont complete cycle and empty the water just hums for a while and then turns its self off


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle


    The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

    See from Repairclinic:
    "This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

    However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

    A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

    Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

    More likely you will have to replace the timer.

    See again from Repairclinic:
    "When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water."
